here's to the maker
the film double taker
illusion type faker
guaranteed shaker
paravision viewer
or it just may seem
lost the real scope of life
the hope of life
to cope with life
and found it on the screen
and how many times have we heard that line
do you think I'm blind
to trade my mind
for what you call fine
never in my time
I'm not in your movie
hey, what can it be
on the big white screen
hey, how can you see
you're livin' in 3D
I guess you think your at the movies somewhere
stale popcorn
don't stand in your chair
stale popcorn
don' stand in your chair
a child is influenced, by the make believe
to take advantage of the truth is cold hearted sin
so I say to the youth right now
don't sway to the unjust
no matter what they say
never give in, never give in.

    General CommentHands down thee BEST Bad Brains song!
    Hearing a recording of this dose not do it justice.
    LIVE is the only way to get the full effect of how amazing it is!!

    This line...From the 1979 live version floating around youtube...HR sings with a fucking intense passion.
